Are you passionate about design, technology and education? Do you have a wide range of interests beyond your primary discipline? Do you love the creative energy you accessed through your own design education? If so, join our team as a Design Education Fellow at our partner school, Odyssey STEM Academy in LA.

The NuVuX Design Education Fellow will be an instructor based at Odyssey STEM who will lead the design and implementation of studios with the support and mentorship of the NuVu Team in Cambridge. The Fellow will join a unique, highly skilled cohort of fellows who lead programs at NuVu’s growing network of partner schools around the world.

Odyssey STEM Academy is a pioneering new public school piloting a connected, interdisciplinary curriculum for high school students.  The Design Studio Program at Odyssey is a year-long intensive course for incoming freshmen that prepares them for open-ended, creative work throughout their high school careers. 

The ideal Design Education Fellow:

  • Flourishes in collaborative environments

  • Thinks critically and creatively

  • Is an enthusiastic and innovative maker of things

NuVu’s hands-on studio curriculum is grounded in fundamental design skills and explores an extensive range of topics and disciplines. Within our model, students take projects from idea to finished prototype through an iterative process of research, diagramming, prototyping, critical feedback, and input from experts. The Fellow will have opportunities to expand their own knowledge and creativity through collaboration with students and staff on projects that result in real products. Fellows engage collaboratively with NuVu faculty, who have expertise across many fields, including: industrial design, fashion, architecture, robotics, engineering, art, music, and filmmaking.

Experience and comfort with multiple modes of analog and digital fabrication is required. Familiarity with Arduino, electronics and mechanical design is desirable.

The Design Education Fellow will begin work at NuVu in Cambridge, MA in Spring 2021, and then transition to Los Angeles in Summer 2021 for the duration of the school year. This is a full time position. Compensation starts at $60,000 USD and is commensurate with experience.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resume, and portfolio to nuvux@nuvustudio.org.
